SVA Managing Director Says: We are extremely pleased to have Hagerty as our new Insurance partner and we wholeheartedly recommend them to our subscribed Owners, Collectors & Enthusiasts. ‘Agreed value’ is one of the most important benefits owners want, and while many others charge a substantial fee for this, Hagerty provide it freely, that’s why we exclusively choose Hagerty for all vehicles and collections under £200,000.
OUR STORY Hagerty’s roots date back to 1984 when Frank and Louise Hagerty created their own unique specialty insurance program for vintage wooden boats after they couldn’t find proper coverage for their own classics. Their idea pioneered a new niche in the insurance world, which completely changed the way collector vehicles were treated by insurance companies. Hagerty is now the world’s largest specialty insurance provider, focusing its entire business and expertise on classic vehicles. As Hagerty has grown into a global company, we have remained a privately-owned, family business built on a love for classic vehicles. Our passion for the hobby, and our firm belief that our clients deserve the best, have kept us innovating every step of the way

We are dedicated to continuing the development of specialist insurance exclusively, and do not offer any other insurance products such as household or travel insurance.
